    I take warfarin because of mechanical valves and combined with this drug, I could have died. A week in the hospital because my INR was so high after my legs gave out and I landed on the floor (called 911). Four months later I am still dealing with the after effects.All this having taken only TWO pills. This drug should not be on the market.
